    Yea well I don't blame other countries preparing their own weapons. We need to stop trying to police every country and take all their weapons for us to keep and focus on the domestic issues here in the States at hand.

    Sure.... it'd be nice only to focus on domestic issues , but then.... we don't live in a perfect world. Dangerous countries with nuclear toys have to be policed in my opinion.

    And policed very closely too.

    LOL!! By who? Us? And we're not a dangerous country? Please. This type of attitude is why we're in such deep crap now. Those idiots in office think they can commit genocide on all Middle Easterners because of one terrorist attack that happened over a decade ago. Sorry but the reality is, the United States is a dangerous country, but it's getting over it's head thinking it's top-gun of the world. Other countries are allowed to have weapons nor is it our job to police them.

    And policed very closely too.
    If we keep it up with this method, we're going to have another more serious, devastating attack on our soil.

    Leave other countries alone and focus on how we're going to get our economy back in shape.

    My money is on Pakistan help with former USSR technicians in a supporting role. Lets not overplay the web of relationships too much. Our former President went a long way in setting the webs.

    I wouldn't worry too much about the aid we have repeatedly pledged North Korea. It rarely gets delivered, they accuse us of not honoring the treaty, we accuse them, little aid actully ends up being transferred.

    While many are wont to label NK's leadership as crazier than a sh*thouse rat the politics are simple. I believe that we can be the bigger nation and negotiate a settlement to the Korean War. South Korea used to fight that concept, the totalitarians that we call allies used the threat of a new invasion internally. Now it seems we want to use the threat to keep reunification from occurring.

    There was a day when no one thought Germany would be reunited, yet here we are, no more FRG.

    The Axis of E-Vile is as much a direct result of our past saber rattling and Pre-emptive War Policy than any love between Shia Muslims and a closed cult minor asian nation.

    I do understand what you are saying but at the end of the day you have to take sides and decide what side are you on. And for me at least USA is not the dangerous country.

    Also, for instance if a country like Iran closes the strait of Hormuz its going to affect the whole world, let alone your own economy. We do not live in our own little bubbles any more its all interrelated that's what Global World means.

    I don't have to take any side. I'm just going to watch the fireworks.

    Well this country should've thought of that before launching an invasion under the guise of "finding and killing terrorists." And we don't live in our own bubble because we choose not to. Instead we have our noses in other's business.

    Re: Pentagon activates missile defenses for North Korean launch

    NK has been and is a bigger threat than Hussein was. While we were busy over there with Shock and Awe, NK was busily staying under the radar doing their thang. Quietly taking advantage that Sauron's eyeball was on all the warfare in Rohan and Gondor and not paying attention to other things going on.

    Then all of a sudden, Sauron's eyeball saw movement....in NK. Too late? Remains to be seen.

    .... may be nothing will come from this but for Japan it is a big deal as for all South East Asia and for Australia too.

    Re: Pentagon activates missile defenses for North Korean launch

    Back in the 60's when I was a preteen, my dad once told me that Russia was not the threat to us. He said China was. I have never forgotten that. He never talked politics with me. Ever. But we were watching TV and something was on he was watching..the news or something...and he said that.

    I think he was right. While we focus now on NK, what are the chinese doing?
